The popular anime styled massively multiplayer online (MMO) videogame, Elsword, has today launched in the UK. Elsword is played as a unique mix of 2D side-scrolling action and role-playing as players fight their way through a world full of action, magic and adventure, either on their own or in a team with their friends.
Elsword first appeared at the end of 2010 and is growing ever more popular amongst European gamers, already available in German, French, Italian, Spanish and Polish and now English. Since its launch, Elsword has been expanded in size through numerous updates, all of which have been integrated into the UK version. Set in a world that draws its energy from the mythical Eldrit Stone, one day this stone fractured and the shards were spread out in all directions. It’s now the task of the players to reunite these shards and to then ensure the survival of the world of Elsword.
To accomplish this task, the players must fight their way through diverse worlds full of mean monsters and other dangers. Gameplay is fast and action-focused. The heroes of Elsword have numerous skills and combos at their disposal with which they can take down their opponents in best beat-’em-up fashion. Player versus player (PvP) fans will get their money’s worth in specially made arenas, where they can measure their skills against and alongside other Elsword players.
In the coming months regular expansions will be provided for Elsword: for example, the characters Rena, Aisha, Raven, Chung and Eve will be recipients of additional class change options. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Elsword and other titles from Gameforge.
